Okta – Where to find my API-Key?
  1. Be sure that you are logged into Okta as an administrator that possesses the rights to perform your API call's actions

    • For example, if you plan to use the token for an API call that will add users to an administrator role, you must create the API token signed on as a Super Administrator.

    • Please refer to our Administrators guide for a list of admin roles and their rights.

  2. In the Okta Admin Console, navigate to Security > API

  3. Click Create Token

  4. Enter a name for your token

  5. Document the Token value from the screen that appears

    • Important: please be sure to document and store the API token value carefully, as it can not be retrieved later and can present a security risk if used in an unauthorized fashion
